According to the help file under  "keyboard shortcuts" (logos4:Help):

Ctrl+=  zoom in
Ctrl+-   zoom out

It doesn't work for me though.

A temporary workaround is to use the built in magnifier - <Win>+=

Cool, I never knew about that. Hmm...that key combination doesn't do anything on my machine.

I think it is Windows thing - can anybody confirm this works?  For me it also works in my browser and MS Office,

Another way to access this is through the control panel --

Yeah, that's what I meant, not +/-

What are you referring to by "it"? <Ctrl>-+/= or the "built in magnifier" you referred to, <Win>-=?

I've got Windows Vista, IE8, and MS Office 2007. <Win>-= doesn't seem to do anything in either of those latter or anywhere in Windows.

On the other hand, <Ctrl>-=/- does work in IE8 to zoom in/out. It doesn't work in Office, though. It works in Logos in Biblical People and Places. I just wanted to see it work within a resource panel, to move the font slider one notch to the right/left.

Ah, I see. I think that checkbox has to be turned on in the control panel for the <Win>-= key to work. Got it working. Probably won't end up using it, though nice to know it exists in case I ever become visually impaired.

Mine must be set by default - as you can see, I did not have mine checked.  I am not visually impaired (yet),  Maybe somebody else has the answer.

I don't know the answer, but that setting is for  if you want it to automatically start with windows loading,  but I have been looking further at making use of it and have  pinned the magnifier program to my taskbar.  When I want to use I simply hit SHIFT+WINDOWS KEY + 9 (9 because it is the 9th icon on my taskbar) .  To stop it I simply hit WINDOWS KEY + ESC.

I have a nice comfy chair about 2-3 metres from my desk I use for reading real books and when I'm watching a video on my computer.  Using Windows magnifier and my wireless keyboard and mouse I can now also sit in that chair and do some general reading and follow the tangents it takes me (like running a BWS report or looking up a map etc and have quick and easy access to magnifier when I need it.

 

While using Windows Magnifier in Windows 7 the other short-cut keys are:

Windows logo key + Plus Sign or Minus Sign Zoom in or out
Ctrl+Alt+Spacebar Preview the desktop in full-screen mode
Ctrl+Alt+F Switch to full-screen mode
Ctrl+Alt+L Switch to lens mode
Ctrl+Alt+D Switch to docked mode
Ctrl+Alt+I Invert colors
Ctrl+Alt+arrow keys Pan in the direction of the arrow keys
Ctrl+Alt+R Resize the lens
